IRI Brazil Launches Local Chapters In Porto Velho And Belém

IRI Brazil recently launched local chapters in Porto Velho (RO) and Belém (PA), marked by events hosting leaders from diverse faiths, including Catholic, Evangelical, Anglican, Judaism, African religions, and Druidism. In both cities, the chapters commence with an initial group of 30 religious leaders. Over the coming weeks, the newly established chapters will strive to enhance religious inclusivity and develop an action plan for the remaining months of this year and, above all, for 2024.  Activities will focus on the protection of forests, climate action and  securing the rights of indigenous peoples.
